    no, but that would be awesome... smith still has some good years left in him, it woudl be an awesome move as long as the price isn't too high....

    I dont know if I would like that trade. Even tho smith is very good he isnt the style of receiver we need. We need a guy with size and sure hands in the red zone

    I heard they want a 1st or high 2nd. Never happen he's going to the Bears. Not unless we can package a player and lower pick.

    a first round pick for a guy that is already 30 yrs old? don't make me laugh. they can probably land a second and maybe a depth player?

    smith a tough dude, we need some attitude in the receiving corps. and he is one of the best at YAC, another thing we sorely lack.

    maybe not, but in the end, it doesn't matter. they are not going anywhere this year. and the dolphins are not a divisional opponent for them, they likely won't see smith again for a long time.

    man, henne throwing deep to steve smith sounds pretty enticing. and he's a tough enough runner to maybe get him involved in some wildcat trickeration.

    the bears already traded away their first *second* and third round picks for next year and a first for the year after, which means we have a better chance of getting him if we the FO really wants him. I doubt the bears are going to give away all their picks just in the hopes of winning in the short term.

    *edit* - thanks greasyObnoxious

    I don't see why you would trade Ginn. There is no point to trade Ginn, now you have a quarterback that can get him the ball deep.

    A 2nd and a 4th would probably get it done. If i were the dolphins i would do this in a heartbeat. If Henne continues to play like he did vs the Jests, It could be a move that would put you guys over the top...

    Well the last time a situation involving an older reciever being traded that i remember was Randy Moss to the Patriots and we all know how that one turned out. Moss was 30 and Smith is 29 (which really isn't that old), i doubt the Panthers think anyone is going to give up 1st.

    very true....the Pats got Moss for a 4th....so its certainly possible. I'd give a 3rd for Steve Smith

    trading Ginn for Smith would make exactly ZERO sense

    I would like to have a physical WR with size and speed, not a 5'9" 190 pounder like Steve Smith.

    Bowe would still be my 1st choice....Steve Smith would be my 2nd....and Sims-Walker would be my 3rd

    it would be sick,

    #1 Smith (all around bad *** +YAC)
    #2 Ginn (Speed + Deep threat)
    #3 (Slot) Bess/Cam (Hands)
    #4 Hartline (change of pace)
    #5 Turner (End zone target) *hopefully one day at least.

    It would be sick with Bowe too, but smith is a a bona fide superstar WR with 5 1000+ yard seasons 45 total TDs and 18.2 per catch avg last year.

    Bowe's only advantage is his height at 6"2 vs Smith at 5"11 (parcells likes em big)and his age 25 vs 30. Those are likely 2 big advantages with this FO though.

    I hope we get one of them!

    Not that I disagree...as I'm not sure how much Smith would be worth, however Moss came with baggage. Potentially lots of baggage that he left behind and worked out great for New England.

    Smith is one of the most physical Wr's in the NFL.
    I know he is not 6'4 but he goes over Db's heads like he is.

    That's one of the dumber things i've read on here so far...have you ever watched him play? He plays like a giant...i mean Jake Delsuck just chucks it up into double coverage and the guy out jumps and out muscles whoever is around for the football. I could care less if he's 5'9" bc it doesn't mean ****. The guy comes down with the ball regardless of his height and weight.

    physically speaking, id take Smith over Bowe... he might not have the height, but he still outjumps people, out muscles defenders, and is faster than most WRs in the league...

    it would take a lot to get steve smith. somehow I don't see this team giving up that much when they would probably admit to still being in a rebuilding mode. that's why I'm not getting my hopes up for Smith. Bowe on the other hand might be had for an acceptable amount?

    thats what I'm trying to figure out....I don't remember him speaking out much and being a big drama queen, but I don't like any player on my team speaking out like this saying he's of no use to the team because the quarterback sucks.

    Wasn't Smith the one with the 60 something yard overtime reception against the Rams in the playoffs years ago?

    And not that I think this trade is going to happen, but here's a video of some Smith highlights...

    Does anyone remember who we were hoping to get last year right before the trade deadline? I think it would be interesting to see how good those players ended up doing.....

    I think you are right but it is fun to dream.

    Im not sure what i think of this possibility. I think it doesnt happen so my thoughts dont really matter much however lol. I live here in Charlotte and while Smith is a beast, no doubt, the man wines and cries CONSTANTLY. Alright so yes Delhome is absolute trash , but whenever Smith isnt the focus of a game he opens his mouth. Is that what we need on a team that pounds the ball? o_O

    Making these trades goes against what this regime wants to do right? We want to keep picks and build through the draft supposedly. But I guess anything can happen and I expect it will.

    True that. Smith is one of the most physical players in the league. He got heart.
    He goes out there and lays everything out on the field.
    I love watching the guy play.

    Man people get to held up on age on this board. To quote John Grueden on the first Monday Night Football Game" With today's workout programs, suppliments, hypobaric chambers, 30 is not a issue anymore." You have to evaluate it on a case by case basis now.

    Smith is a BEAST! Any time he gets his hands on the ball he is a threat to break it. Last year after he Torched Rhonde Barber all game long in the post game Rhonde siad " covering him is ridiculous he has the fastest first to steps in football!" Imagine all the times Bess or Cam catches the ball underneath makes a move, but gets caught? Smith makes that move and is gone! He has passion for the game and wants the ball, he was thrown to 1 time against Tampa this week. All because Delhome is gun shy from all his interceptions. Sure Bowe has inches on Smith, but Smith doesn't DROP the ball!

    But if you can get a proven young receiver like Bowe who is 25 for a pick, then we aren't taking any chances and that leaves other areas of the team to address like safety and inside linebacker.

    i think people think #1 as a 6-5 220lb guy.......a true #1 is a guy that when the ball is in the air he wants it the most and will never let anybody stop him. Steve Smith is that guy he fights and makes plays he needs like a inch of daylight and he can take it to the house.


    think of him this way a really fast Bess and trust me he is #1 he wants to win and will make huge plays for whoever he ends up playing for

    Steve Smith is the #2 best WR in the NFL.

    #1 is Randy Moss
    #2 is Steve Smith (Panthers)

    period. The guy is amazing. The Panthers suck and their QB is a joke this season.

    If we get Smith, ooooh boy.
